"This book not only answers the how but the why as well. Maricel is our bridge to the past, the history of Latin American cocina, describing the original connections to Spain and its cooking and then what has evolved... more aromas, more textures, more flavors, more sexy ingredients. We can now understand Latin America better because of Maricel and the amazing foods that tell its rich history." -- Jose Andres
"I know of no other book that approaches the scholarship, passion and decades-long dedication that Maricel Presilla has lavished on Gran Cocina Latina." -- Rick Bayless
"Gran Cocina Latina is a book as grand as its subject. It's a beautifully written distillation of Maricel Presilla's decades of experience in the markets and kitchens of Latin America. I can't imagine a better guide to this vast and underappreciated region. Maricel is a scholar, food importer, restaurateur, tireless explorer, and above all is passionate about everything she does. Gran Cocina Latina explains clearly how to bring the special flavors of Latin America to our own tables." -- Harold McGee
"Books like this don't happen very often so drink it in and know it will still be in your kitchen ten years from now." -- Lynne Rossetto Kasper, Host of The Splendid Table (R), public radio's national food show from American Public Media
"The food of the Spanish- and Portuguese-speaking New World is complex, intricate, and has variety and range, extending from Cuba to Ecuador and from Mexico to Brazil. Maricel Presilla, a chef and food historian, takes us through that whole continent in a comprehensible, intelligent, original, and delicious voyage." -- Jacques Pepin
"[A] serious but accessible study." -- Pete Wells - New York Times
